"Congratulations to Amanda," said Pioneers head coach Becky Kregling, from the NCAA Championship. "She is deserving of the honor, after helping our team to an NEC Championship with all the hard work she put. I could not be happier for, or prouder of, Amanda for achievinga goal she set for herself as a freshman."
Nardiello enjoyed a successful senior campaign, earning First-Team All-NEC as she led the Pioneers to their second consecutive NEC Regular Season crown and a berth in the final match of the NEC Championship for the third year in a row. She finished with a 236.0 average at the PVAM Invitational, earning Tournament MVP and All-Tournament Team honors.

She also ranked in the top-10 in the nation in single-pin spares, all spares, baker double, and split leaves.
